at home. good morning to you, again, martha. we're watching the second launch attempt since kim jong-un took over after his father's death a year ago. the last try failed. here is the head of the u.s. pacific command keeping a watch on this. >> we're approaching once again a potential violation of a u.n. security council resolution and we encourage and the leadership in north korea to consider what they're doing here and the implications on the overall security environment own the careen peninsula as well as in asia. martha: molly henneberg is live. north koreans may have run into a snag with this launch plan which may be biding some time. what can you tell us about it? >> reporter: martha, a weather snag. snow may have slowed north korea's efforts to put the missile together on the launch pad although the latest satellite pictures suggest it may be ready for liftoff if they decide to go ahead with it on monday. it appears all three parts of the rocket are mounted on the launch pad. north korea has tried four times since 1998 to launch a three stage rocket successfully but have been
a factor in this delay. i'm told no, kim jong un is the new young leader there. he's marking the first anniversary of the death of his father kim jong-il. we think according to the experts they will go forward with this and we think that whatever happens, successor failure, it's going to be declared a success, bill. bill: thanks, greg. greg palkot will be declared a success on the inside of that country, thanks in london. martha: a lot of politics at play as greg says, that is why this rocket launch is so controversial. the u.s. and most of the world believes that north korea is working on a ballistic missile that would be capable of hitting america. the rogue nation has conducted four tests of long range missiles since 1998 all of the tests as greg was just saying have landed in the water, they all failed. as we are saying that does not mean that they have stopped trying. bill: and they will try again. also overseas, hillary clinton forced to delay a trip aimed at providing more support to the opposition in syria. clinton reportedly has a so many abstomach virus. she will take part wi
for the young leader, kim jong-un, to consolidate power and make north korea still more relevant to north korea's presidential elections which will be held next wednesday. because the north had announced technical glitches earlier this week and extended the launch window to the 2 th of the -- 29th of the month, the timing caught the world offguard but could not dodge strong criticism. south korea for one lashed out, of course, calling it a violation of u.n. security council resolutions. and china, north korea's long-time ally, also expressed regret launch calling on the state to abide by u.n. resolutions. now u.n. security council diplomats have also set up an emergency meeting today at the request of the u.s. and japan. back to you. >> all right. thanks for that. >>> the senior fellow at the school of international studies at the technological university. thanks for joining us. what does this test do today? what's the impact on regional securit security? >> short term, i don't think the impact is going to be particularly severe. in some ways it's been priced in. and for once, north korea's roc
in the future the u.s. mainland. but it does seem a political success for the new leader, kim jong-un, this young new leader. he pushed for this rocket to be tested and for once it has been successful. back to you. martha: david, thank you very much. we'll have more on that coming up later. bill: certainly will. david mentioned, north korea made several launch attempts in the past but this is the first time the regime has successfully carried one out. in total north korea reportedly has more than 800 ballistic missiles and has an array of short, intermediate range missile systems. we'll talk in a moment how that changes the game. martha: sure does. no surprise that launch has really gotten the world's attention. could it be a game-changer in international relations with this rogue regime? we'll examine that question. bill: also this fight over union rights turns down right nasty. protesters storming the statehouse while inside a democratic lawmaker says, "there will be blood.". as union supporters call out the governor signing the bill into law. >> he is so out of touch with michig
the fireworks and sure enough, they had great timing there in north korea. kim jong-un probably did this to honor his father whose death is this coming when i read the white house statement, i read, oh, wait, didn't i write this in 2006, because it's basically the same language that america has been use not guilty its foreign policy with north korea for years. >> brian: that rocket is just the technology from the '60s, the soviet era '60s, just a little juiced up. >> for us, looking at it, it is a concern because if they do get better technology and if they're rockets reach one of our allies or even all the way across the pacific to us, that obviously is a major problem. but this looks different from inside north korea with state television. this is a big deal to them. it means a lot. >> gretchen: we saw them celebrating. something that wasn't celebrated was the mob action that was going on in michigan yesterday with these protests about the state becoming a right to work state and a lot of people who support the unions were against this. it was interesting because president obama w
